Two motorboats helped create some whitewater conditions at sea for a kayaker in Limassol, Cyprus. Footage captured by Limassol native Theodoros Parlalidis from one of the boats shows the kayaker happily buffeted by the motor-generated waves.
Parlalidis told Storyful the video shows a friend of his, and was filmed on August 15. It later went viral thanks to a version posted on TikTok.
Parlalidis and his brother, he said, have been heavily involved in water sports since childhood, and despite the pair now being in their 30s, this hasn’t dimmed their enthusiasm one bit.
The pair own a boat and spend a lot of time at sea with others who share their passion.
“That’s how we had two boats and many people for this video,” he said, with the duo coming up with the idea after parking up their boat and “drinking our evening coffee”. With some wind in the air, they decided to experiment with creating an extreme kayaking experience using the conditions as well as the two boats at hand.
Parlalidis said the group had never tried such a stunt before, but going on the results of this first try it’s likely not to be the last time the kayak gets a helping hand. Credit: Theodoros Parlalidis via Storyful
